If you’re a prepper, then odds are that at some point someone has said to you, “If there’s a disaster, I’ll just come to your house.” I get angry every time I hear this. How can they not see how selfish this is?
It’s like saying, “If my car breaks down, I’ll just take your car,” or “If I go broke, I’ll just take your money.” The hell you will.
Prepping takes a huge amount of time, research, money, and work. If your survival plan is to leech off my efforts, you’re going to be very disappointed. It might sound harsh, but if I take in everyone who needs help, there won’t be enough supplies for everyone, making my preps all for naught.
